Color reduction for knitting
In a jacquard knitted product, 2 to 5 colors can be used. Logos and photos usually have many more colors, so the number of colors has to be reduced before knitting. This can be done directly in the Online Designer


The result of the reduction on the right is only one possible outcome.
You can get diffferent results, when choosing different settings.



Settings are shown after uploading an image in the Online Designer:


- Click the color buttons on the left to choose colors used for color reduction
- pixeled / solid: reduction of image either pixeled with dithering, or with solid areas
- Background: switch to remove the background automatically. This works good if foreground / background is clearly defined, e.g. when using a portrait photo
- Image settings: choose a preset, or use the rulers on the right

Also important: The size of the image on the product
If scaled larger, more pixel / stitches are available to display the image. Scale image up/down to see the difference. Detailed logos or photos should not be made too small, or they might not be recognisable anymore.
